    Also... why is Revere back in right field? I get that Gardy wants to reward his veteran guy by giving Span back his position, but there's no reason Revere couldn't be put in left where he's a better fit now that there are other outfield options.... it's not like Revere's future is in right field anyway.
    Funny, I was just going to post this and it looks like hindsight.....but there was no reason to play Butera. This means Doumit could have been at C, Revere in LF, and Parmelee in RF to get him some more at bats.

    Now there's apparently plenty of reason to play Butera. The Twins just posted tonight's lineup. Butera starts at C again- It's the first "one-catcher" lineup I can remember in recent weeks. Doumit gets a much-deserved night off from his nightmare game yesterday. Revere stays in RF, Mastro in LF.

    Wait, is Parmelee hurt?

    Seriously? I like Mastro but c'mon.

    Yeah, I'm find with Butera giving Doums a rest, but the Twins lineup should not have two catchers (w/o Mauer) as it did last night.
